Eliminates Cheney's Phantom stereotype.

I think he meant, "in the movie"

Lon Cheney never had his arms amputated. In the movie, "The Unknown", a man, Peter Dismuki, who was born with no arms, doubled for Lon Cheney in some of the shots....smoking and playing the fiddle for instance.

Lon Chaney deserves the accolades for his amazing performances. This is one of them in terms of both his maniacal facials as well as the 'stumps' he fabricated for himself. I was told that he had bound his lower legs tight with straps against his thighs to create the amputated effect and that he endured such great pain during the performance that he could only wear the leg restraints for 10 minutes at a time.
Speaking of 'The Unknown', it can be seen at http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x16h4o_the-unknown-1_extreme , in its entirety, though in chapters.

No it is unfortunately still under copyright.

The above-named film--in which Chaney deliberately has his arms amputated after working as an armless knife-thrower in a carnival (it's complicated--could be an interesting bookend to "The Penalty".

Does anyone know: is "The Unknown" PD?
